Gwen Stefani is a pro at keeping secrets.
On Thursday, Dec. 10, Blake Shelton virtually chatted with Late Night with Seth Meyers and discussed a few weddings ideas. However, before the "God Gave Me You" singer could answer any questions, Seth Meyers wanted to know why his fiancée Gwen didn't break the engagement news on his show when she was on back in October.
"I have a small gripe," the host began, "which is, the very next day, she basically announced on Instagram that you guys have been engaged. That's the kind of content we could have really had a lot of fun with."
Blake laughed and noted that the ring was right there on the "Rich Girl" singer's finger during the interview.
"She kept, like, doing this with her hand," Blake recalled as he raised his left hand up to his mouth. "And you know, wondering if people would figure out that she was wearing an engagement ring. And I told her, I said, ‘You know you wear more jewelry than Mr. T. so I don't think anybody is gonna pick up on that, Gwen. And they didn't."
Blake then pointed at the cameras and said, "You could've figured it out. She was giving you hints."
Seth had his reasons for missing the minor hand waves, which he explained, "It's very hard over Zoom because you never know. I don't want to stare. You end up looking in the camera more than you do at the guests. So it was true. It was right in front of me and I missed it."
The happy couple, after five years of dating, announced their engagement in late October with an Instagram share, captioned, "yes please! gx" from Gwen's account. Blake also shared the kissing photo where she flashed her ring and wrote, "Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020... And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES!"
